It's very hot and HUMID in Connecticut. It's so steamy that we have to put all our towels (even dish towels that hang on the oven handle) in the dryer to dry. It is important to this story that things don't dry. Because I rinse my collars, and even if they feel dry to the touch, they apparently are not dry.
Because I put my collar on in my humid, steamy house, and I went to work in the air conditioned hospital.
Where my collar dried solid. I'm not kidding. I can't get the damn thing off... it's dried so stiff I can't move it enough to get the collar buttons out. I think I'll have to go sit out in the humidity for a few hours to loosen it up a bit. I bet this NEVER HAPPENS to normal people!
Although I do admit it's a great way to get your library parking comped.
